    Got a chance to try Richtee's "Smitty's 6-15 ground hot pepper mix" this week.

    He says it's called 6-15, because after 6 beers and 15 minutes, you can breathe again! BOY, WAS HE RIGHT!!! I'm not a fan of the hot stuff, but I had to try just the tiniest amount on the end of my finger, and my head nearly blew off my shoulders! It took a good 24 hours before I could feel my tongue again.

    I gave the rest to a friend of mine who loves spicy heat, and he put it on his popcorn and absolutely loved it!

    Hoooo-Daddy, that was one spicy meatball!

    Don't know if Richtee is willing to share the recipe, but I had to give a public shout-out for him... thanks again Richtee!

    Hahahaha... WHIMP! But seriously, the bro-in-law would like to market it in small amounts. he grows all his own stuff and dearly loves to make it. A passion..like we all have for some things, eh. And it's not JUST hot... it's a blend of several peppers...Thai, MEx, Hungarian, black and garlic and onion too. Anyone interested it a sample, I'll be glad to mail one out. And as the new batch is about in, I'll ask him about larger quans. I got 4 Oz last year and still have about .5 Z left...:{)

    Thanks for the kinds words Matt.. Smitty's gonna freak whan I send this to him. Matter of fact he SHOULD be on here...Hmmm

    I love the heat alot. However the stuff that is nothing but heat and no flavor is a waste of time. Sounds like this is some good stuff if it's good on popcorn lol.

    If the offer is still good I'd love a sample gallon [​IMG]

    Wow!...Sounds like something I'd like to try!...

    Also sounds like you'd need an eyedropper in order to not get too much in a recipe!...

    But then...I sometimes drink Cayenne Tea for the ticker!...[​IMG]


    Until later...

    It sounds like some good stuff. Do you use the rocoto peppers? I love 'em when I can find 'em. I usually have to stick with habaneros.

    Richtee, thanks for the sample. I was eating it off my finger tips when I first got it and I must say it is "E to the T". Stuff has got the initial flavor followed by the kick that covers your entire tongue. Great stuff dusted on nacho chips.

    Richtee:

    Just got my sample of 6-15.

    Had a cut that wasn't healing and sprinkled a little on it. After being resuscitated, I woke to find the cut was fused shut, as if miraculously closed with a laser beam.

    While still in the hospital, I heard that some 6-15 was missing from inventory. Rumor has it that it is secretly being made into a WMD, for some third world country. At this time, no word from the UN Inspectors.

    I need to add that I had a split in the end of my offset smoker. Sprinkled on a little 6-15, spritzed with AJ/Capt. Morgan Rum, and watched it weld itself shut, right before my very eyes.

    OK, the truth. I am not exactly a pansy, but still, can not take great heat in my food. 6-15 is certainly hotter than I would have been able to handle, in anything more than a modest amount. Anything more than a taste test. But taste, I did.

    On the first taste, what surprised me was the great flavor, not the heat. A flavor that was actually coming out, in spite of the heat. I found this unusual. Frequently, there is heat, just for heat's sake. This actually had flavor and tasted good. Hot, yes! But, not 'killer harsh'. I had taken in about the tip of a teaspoon and was both, still alive and enjoying it. Go figure!!

    I waited a while and had a bigger taste. Once again, same thing. Amazing but each time, as the flavor and warmth subsided, I found myself wanting another taste. This darned stuff was delicious and could easily become addicting.

    I am learning to love Chipotle and various other chili's/peppers. But, 6-15 ranks right up there with the best. I had asked for just enough to dunk the tip of my finger in. I simply wanted to taste it. Now I am glad you sent a little more. Even after my testing, I have enough left to actually try something with, and am anxious to do so. As 6-15 cooks down, I have a feeling it is going to be fantastic.

    This stuff is great and I don't know why it wouldn't sell. I for one, would certainly buy it. And, will do so, the minute you let me know that more is available.

    Thanks again,

    Hahaha... Glad you liked it And it does mellow a bit when cooked. I did some "cheater's pepperoni" and was a great mix with a little fennel and CBP. The Hott Butt was really delicious as well. But straight.. yeah, it's got a kick!

    Word is...Christmas time on the new batch. I have gone thru a half lb. or so this year, and can see that increasing!
